There’s always a lot of buzz that comes out of CES (Consumer Electronics Show – Las Vegas) each year, but this year Intel and HP Multi Jet Fusion Tech should have you buzzing – especially if you’re already chomping at the bit for 3D printing technology.
Last week HP announced the Intel Corporation as the silicon architecture for HP Multi Jet Fusion. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion is a technology aims to introduce a new era of manufacturing, delivering higher productivity and quality at a lower cost. A part of HP’s Blended Reality ecosystem, HP Multi Jet Fusion technology is designed to break down barriers between the digital and physical worlds with proprietary features that together, resolve the fundamental limitation of current 3D printing systems.
During CES the HP Executive Vice President of Printing & Personal Systems, Dion Weisler, joined Intel Chief Executive Officer, Brian Krzanich on stage to share how this collaboration aims to realize the potential of 3D printing. The partnership underscores the companies’ commitment to delivering transformative technologies for the future. Tech engineered by HP and powered by Intel has the potential to revolutionize production and offer businesses a new way to produce goods.
“HP Multi Jet Fusion is uniquely designed to resolve fundamental limitations in today’s 3D printing technologies with the potential to revolutionize manufacturing,” said Weisler. “In order for 3D printing to reach its full potential, we not only need the most powerful processors, but a technology partner with a shared vision for the industry.”
The core 3D printing tech capabilities are already a reality today, but to ensure HP’s new solutions deliver on their potential, HP is engaging early customers in the development process with an Open Customer Engagement Program, where select customers work with HP for expedited solution product testing and feedback.
Intel Core i7 processors will be integrated into HP Multi Jet Fusion technology throughout 2015 with wider distribution beginning in 2016.
